Museum for African Art Scales Back Construction Plans

The new Museum for African Art, which was originally scheduled to open on New York’s Museum Mile at Fifth Avenue and 110th Street in 2009, has announced plans to dramatically scale back its construction plans in order meet budgetary shortfalls, reports the New York Times.

Once budgeted at $135 million, the project now stands to spend a more modest $95 million, and has eliminated pricey features such as a curved ceiling of rare wood imported from Ghana (it will be replaced with polished concrete), a spiraling staircase, and a classical theater and restaurant. The institution sought to sell naming rights to its new building for $50 million, but found no takers.

My heart is heavy with the recent loss of little Genesis due to gun violence in my city of Paterson. Riding her scooter this past Saturday she was hit by a stray bullet. She was declared brain dead and the family has taken her off of life support and are attempting to raise money for her funeral. 
This was a daughter, a student, an innocent child attempting to enjoy life in a downtrodden neighborhood. We pray for justice for Genesis and are attempting to alleviate the financial burden of a family already overcome with emotional burden.
Thank you in advance

Yesterday, my niece Genesis Rincon, 12 years old, was brutally murdered on July 5, 2014 at about 7pm, as she was innocently riding on her scooter. No one is ever prepared for a tragedy like this. One minute we are having fun as a family, and the next minute she is hit by stray bullets. We are asking for friends, family, and the community to come together and help the family in this very difficult time. All donations will go to funeral and burial expenses. Thanks to all.
